Jim Lee: 4 Color Portrait


Picture: Seth Kushner
Words: Christopher Irving


There's something about Jim Lee's art that doesn't get old. His marrying of manga influences with tried-and-true American ones still looks bad-ass, turning thirty-somethings weaned on his X-Men work back to being the fanboys who first read his comics in the early '90s.

The past decade has seen Lee fulfill every wanna-be cartoonists wanna-be dreams: chances to draw Batman, design a DC Comics video game, and become co-publisher of DC Comics.

And that's a not a bad thing.
